Coronavirus is one of the most serious and threatening global health diseases killing thousands of people.

Actions to address it have passed the responsibility of governments alone, requiring the participation of individuals and private institutions.

As part of efforts to prevent the spread of the disease in The Gambia through sensitisations, chief of Central River Region’s Niani District, Alhagie Perie Bah conducted a day sensitisation of his district alkalolu on the virus and urged them to play active roles in the prevention of its spread in their communities.

“People should stay in their homes and maintain the social distancing as advised by Ministry of Health and WHO to prevent and control the spread of coronavirus,” he told the alkalolu.

He further advised the alkalolu and the people of his district to remain vigilant about people entering into the country through porous borders within the district, urging them to report any suspected cases to the health authorities or to call the 1025 free toll number.

Alkalolu of Pallol, Kataba Omar Ndow, Mbayen Wolof and Dingirai all thanked chief Bah for his commitment in the fight against coronavirus and assured him that they will play their quarter in preventing the spread of the virus in the district.   

The alkalolu have now launched a selected committee to be monitoring the area and provide each village with sanitary materials.
